what bolt /tube to get 98 custom?

hey, i was looking into bolts for my tippmann 98 custom. i have found a few bolts, and i was wondering what brand is best and also if metal or plastic is better. i have also found packages with both bolts and a back tube, my same questions apply for the tube, thanks for the help!

The stock parts are best you aren't going to get any better performance with an aftermarket bolt or powertube and many actually make your marker perform worse.

thanks for replying, yours is the first opinion to say they are worse. I have looked on pbreview and no one has said they are worse, but then again, thats pbreview. thanks again for replying but i want more opinions before i make a decision.

The only reason I changed out the power tube on my 98c was the product of boredom and a bunch of aluminum stock.


I would not recommend buying any of the aftermarket once as they are the same as the stock one only metal in some cases.

Check out the 98OG they have some in depth testing posted up that looked at a lot of the common aftermarket parts compared against the stock parts. The stock parts tested just as good and often better than the aftermarket parts. There is little reason to replace anything on a blowback like a Tippmann unless it is broken and even then the only thing I'd buy aftermarket would be an aluminum powertube.
